Porn stars in HIV scare.

FEARS of an HIV epidemic among the stars of adult movies in the US have led to calls for a moratorium on productions.

The porn business in the States is believed to be worth billions of dollars every year and its stars are frequently monitored for HIV.

For four years, not a single porn star gave a positive test. But earlier this month, adult entertainer Darren James was found to have the virus.

It is now feared the San Fernando-based entertainer may be just one of many infected stars.

A dozen women he has appeared with on film recently are currently being tested.

The Adult Industry Medical Health Care Foundation has now called for production on adult movies to cease for two months, allowing time for all stars to be tested.

The proposal has been backed by the industry's trade publication, Adult Video News.
